Great School Libraries campaign

GSL Logo

School libraries aren't statutory, and in the UK no one knows how many there are, or if they are staffed or funded. The Great School Libraries campaign is a three-year campaign which aims to change this – collecting data about school libraries as well as working towards securing school library funding; producing a national framework for school libraries and recognition of school libraries within Ofsted. 

It is about ensuring that all children receive the benefits a school library can provide. 

For more information about the campaign, or to sign up as a supporter, visit: http://greatschoollibraries.edublogs.org/
